Top 25 Best-Selling SUVs (All Segments) In January 2021

2020 Toyota Rav4
2020 Toyota RAV4 XSE Hybrid.

The SUV craze continues, and if you look at January 2021 versus January 2020, sales were up almost 20,000 vehicles just from the car companies that report. I suspect if we had GM and Stellantis (formerly Fiat Chrysler) numbers, it would be a much larger increase.

Remember, in January 2020 Covid-19 was unknown. Also, in January 2021 the auto industry was dealing with vehicle shortages, primarily due to the microchip shortage we covered here last week.

Toyota RAV4 continues its dominance of SUV sales, with CR-V in second place, and surprisingly the Ford Explorer came in third. Note that the Ford Bronco Sport appears for the first time on the list, and in the top 15.
